Supervisory Disclosure

One of the objectives behind prudential regulation and supervision is to increase transparency. With increased disclosure requirements for supervisors, supervised entities and other interested parties can receive information on prudential regulation and the execution of supervision in a centralised manner. Identical implementation of the disclosure requirement among the EU supervisors also allows meaningful comparison of information between the EU countries. This serves to promote both the uniformity of supervisory methods and the integration of the EU single market.

The supervisory disclosure requirement is based on Article 143(1) of the Capital Requirements Directive (2013/36/EU).

The Commission Implementing Regulation (650/2014) specifies the format, structure, contents list and annual publication date of the information to be disclosed.

The required information published by the FIN-FSA is organised in the following sections:
